Occasional constipation affects 15-20% of the US population. It can be caused by stress, dehydration, or diets high in refined carbohydrates combined with the absence of fiber. Dietary fiber, the indigestible part of plant foods, enables smooth bowel movements and may prevents occasional constipation. Psyllium husk is one of the most widely used fibers in natural bulk laxatives. Several clinical trials have shown psyllium to be significantly effective when studied alongside laxatives. Psyllium husk has demonstrated to improve overall bowel regularity and effective at increasing stool output without the harsh side effects and dependency commercial laxatives may offer. When looking for a natural laxative that you can use every day, psyllium husk may be the right choice for maintaining long term bowel regularity and overall gastrointestinal heath.
